More and more cherished number plates are being sold during our current economic situation as they are deemed as a sound investment.
Cherished number plates are becoming a more popular way of advertising companies. One of the best known plumbing companies that are based in London which was interviewed by the News at Ten after last week's budget, Pimlico Plumbers have cherished number plates on each of their company vehicles. Each of the number plates relate to their business, the following are exampled of registrations they own:
LO02 OLD ... RAD 5 .... B19 TAP ... GAS 6 ... 8 WC ... 80 G ... S11 OWER ... 8 WC ... X1 EAK ... BOG 1 ... GA51 EAK ... LO02 LOO ... DRA 1N ... WC 55 ... LAV 1 ... HA51 EAK ... LO02 TAP ... G2 LOO ... FLU 55H
Another industry that benefits from Cherished Number Plates are Coach Companies and Haulage Companies. These companies tend to purchase consecutive registrations for example:
RIG 8111 RIG 8112 RIG 8113 RIG 8114RIG 8115RIG 8116RIG 8117RIG 8118
The main reason they choose consecutive cherished number plates is that they look better on their convoy of vehicles, as well as getting their company recognised
